Neil Walker (back) is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

Walker has had a minor setback with the back injury that kept him out for four games earlier this month. The hope is that he'll be fine after one day of rest.

Yoenis Cespedes (quad) is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

Cespedes had a minor flare-up Saturday with the quad injury he just returned from. The feeling right now is that it's likely to be just a one-day absence, but we'll have to wait and see how Cespedes recovers.

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports that Gerrit Cole's elbow injury could be a bone spur issue.

The good news is that an MRI didn't reveal any ligament damage, according to Biertempfel. Cole will receive a second opinion on his elbow from orthopedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Sunday. The righty has posted a 7.06 ERA over his last four starts, so it's possible the elbow has been bothering him for a while. Steven Brault will fill in for Cole on Monday versus the Cubs. It's unclear at this point how much time Cole might miss, although more should be known after Sunday's exam.

John Lackey (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Monday at Wrigley Field.

It will be his first time throwing off the bump since he suffered a right shoulder strain in his August 14 outing. Lackey will not be ready for his next turn on Wednesday, which means Mike Montgomery will get another start. It's unclear what the next step will be for Lackey after Monday.

Michael Foltynewicz limited the Giants to one run in 7 2/3 innings as the Braves won 3-1 on Saturday.

He struck out six while yielding only five hits and one base-on-balls in the excellent outing. His one mistake came on a solo shot by Brandon Crawford. Foltynewicz was fortunate to be facing a Giants lineup missing Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, Hunter Pence and Eduardo Nunez but looked great nonetheless. He is now 7-5 with a 4.30 ERA and 89 punchouts in 102 2/3 innings. The hard-throwing right-hander has solidified himself as a major league starting pitcher and hushed those who said he would be better off in the bullpen.

A.J. Griffin turned in six shutout innings to beat the Indians 7-0 on Saturday.

He gave up five singles and issued one free pass while punching out six in the stellar effort. His teammates handed him a big early lead and in return he kept the Indians from mounting any sort of challenge. Griffin is now 6-3 with a 4.39 ERA in his first season with the Rangers.

Anthony DeSclafani gave up just four hits while striking out nine in a dominant complete-game shutout as the Reds beat the Diamondbacks 13-0 on Saturday.

All four hits were singles. The Diamondbacks were powerless against him all night. It was the first complete game of his career. DeSclafani missed the first two months of the season on the disabled list but has pitched at an ace-like level ever since returning. He is now 8-2 with a 2.96 ERA in 14 starts. He has 84 punchouts and 20 bases-on-balls in 94 1/3 innings.

Hernan Perez homered twice and drove home four runs on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Brewers to victory over the Pirates.

Perez got the scoring started with a three-run blast off Jameson Taillon in the first inning, and he added a solo shot off the right-hander in the third. That gave the Brewers an early 5-1 lead, though they were unable to hold onto it. Perez has been one of the biggest surprises in baseball this season, slashing .281/.308/.470 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and 26 stolen bases. He has come from nowhere to develop into a very capable five-category producer in mixed leagues.

Dallas Keuchel gave up two runs in seven innings of work as the Astros beat the Rays 6-2 on Saturday.

His wildly inconsistent season took a swing in the right direction tonight. He was unscored upon until the fifth inning when ninth-place hitter Bobby Wilson took him deep with a runner aboard. Keuchel gave up nine hits and a walk while generating four strikeouts on the night. His record improves to 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA in 168 innings.

Andrew Cashner was scratched from Sunday's start against the Padres due to a blister on his finger.

Cashner pitched well despite dealing with the blister during his most recent start and now he'll miss a matchup against his former team. Justin Nicolino will start in his place.
Aug 27 - 10:41 PM

Clayton Richard was outstanding in Saturday's victory over the Marlins, allowing eight hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings.

Richard struck out three on the night. He wasn't completely dominant and allowed plenty of baserunners, but was able to bear down and make big pitches when he needed to and didn't allow the Marlins to mount any serious threats. The veteran southpaw will bring a 3.51 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He could be worth a look as a spot starter in deeper mixed leagues.
